As the season nears its end, I think we have to take a large dose of reality. The reality is that the Dodgers are the best team in baseball. Houston is making a late run, but if they try and catch LA to invoke “Home Field Advantage,” then they are likely to “flame out” in the playoffs. The reality also is that any team can get hot in the playoffs and be tough to beat. Modern-day playoff baseball is a “crapshoot,” but I would prefer to geo into the playoffs with the best team in baseball… anyway, you slice it!
